Winter Fest draws a crowd
Virginia City hosted its annual Winter Fest on Saturday, January 5. The day included broomball played on the town ice rink, sledding, marshmallow toasting, a log sawing competition and a fire hose roll, plus a lunch provided by the Virginia City Elks Club.
Most of the town turned out to watch or take part in the festivities. Even though the festival was reduced to a single day this year instead of its usual two, spirits were high and turnout great to celebrate the off-season in Virginia City and join friends and neighbors in enjoying the many winter activities of southwestern Montana.
